Friends of the Library Information Exchange

Branch Services hosted a Friends Information Exchange for the presidents of Friends of the Library groups throughout Ocean County. Branch Managers and Friends spent an energizing afternoon on Thursday, May 20th in Mancini Hall, where they brainstormed new fundraising ideas, discussed how to advocate for the library in their local communities, and teamed up for suggestions in how to support branch needs. Valerie Bell, Assistant Director, shared the news that Friends have spent over $100,000 on programs and equipment between January 2009 and the first quarter of 2010. Branch Managers Toni Smirniw and Kelly-Ann Pennell distributed a brochure they had developed, which highlights area restaurants and attractions that can be booked for specific fund-raising days.  Susan Quinn, Director of the Ocean County Library, thanked the Friends for their continued support and hard work, especially in light of the economic downturn.
